We’ve all had it happen to us, and we know you have, too: A few blocks away from home, you begin to wonder if you really closed the garage door. The thought keeps nagging at you, and you try to talk yourself out of it, but most of the time, you wind up circling back just to make sure.
Thankfully, many companies are developing technology options that will make this problem a thing of the past. And one of the best options is right in your pocket: your smartphone!

You don’t need to purchase an entirely new opener system to benefit from smart technology. In fact, almost any garage door opener can be made “smart” with the installation of some additional equipment.
Many smart openers can be tied into existing home smart hubs. Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and Apple HomeKit are well-known options, so many openers are geared toward these brands. Some openers also integrate with specific apps and services, such as Google Assistant and IFTTT, to make a completely “smart” home easier than ever to achieve.
Which smart system is right for you? There is no one “right” garage door opener for everyone since each person has their own budget and brand preferences. It all comes down to exactly what you want in a smart garage door opener (beyond opening and closing the garage door, of course).
Some smart systems are wireless, while others need to be hardwired to the existing opener. Some devices use magnets, others use adhesive, and still others need bracketing. Proximity to the door sensors also matters, as does software compatibility. While many openers have similar capabilities and interact with several operating systems, not all openers connect in the same way. For example, the Tailwind iQ3 Smart Automatic Garage Controller won’t integrate with Apple Homekit, but it does work with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
Chamberlain, Liftmaster, and Genie are all trusted garage door brands that have entered the smart opener market. Here are a few examples of model capabilities:
Want to make your garage door opener even more personalized to you? Some smart opener systems can integrate with aftermarket equipment to enhance your experience. For instance, the Alcidae Garager 2 comes equipped with cameras, while the Nexx Garage app allows for voice controls.
